Ramadan Kareem every one...I hope you will have a very blessed month. Mine started a bit on a crazy note with filming the new Ramadan TV cooking competition "Leaders Chef", Ramadan orders and lots of issues on the personal level with children's exams ...etc. Just crazy hectic.I wanted and had a lot of ideas in mind from crafts to home decorations but they seem to be on hold for a while. I am trying to finish decorating the house for the holy month as I love every year but it is taking a lot of time. I don't even have much energy with fasting and juggling all of this. Or and most likely I am getting older so I should take it easy and not expect to do the same I used to do a couple of years ago...Big SIGH!!!Lots of recipes are piling up and need to be postedRead more ...

This month I have challenged myself to cook from my pantry as much as I can...this didn't mean by any chance any cutting down on making delicious dishes as I am the kind of person who has a well stocked pantry (Freezer, fridge and the pantry itself). I have also challenged my followers on snapchat and many of them decided to go through the challenge...most of the feedback was successful...many of them ended up saving a lot of money and time thinking of what I am going to cook today and spending extra money on buying this and that when visiting the supermarket.To make this challenge easier on me I have planed my weekly menu trying to utilize what I have on hand to feed my family on a daily basis. In general the experience was a great success but as usual there are some changes that occur due toRead more ...
